KHE Parts 2009
« on: September 09, 2008, 08:18:33 PM »
KHE presented a couple of new products at the Eurobike last weekend. Here is a 2009 roundup:

Paris III Frame
Once again the Paris frame became a little bit lighter. New weight: 1530 g = 3.37 lbs

Equilibrium 2009
For 2009 there will be a optimized edition with new features like removeble pivots, gyrotabs and cablehangers - and of course a better weight: 2120 g = 4.67 lbs

Minimalism Stem
New clamping system and steel inserts.

Tanaka LT
The lower price version of the Tanaka. Cheaper but still made of CrMo. The regular Tanaka will still be available.

Seatclamp: Nice and slim.

Furthermore there will be a Militant complete bike line with different versions:

Militant AM: the beginners will be gifted with an f-set.
Militant LT: for the upcoming talents.
Militant Pro: the usual high end standard.

Last but not least the Paris 3 complete.

it all looks pretty sweet to me. lets not jump to conclusion i would hope they learn from mistakes from each previous model while also learning new techniques to make there frames lighter and hopefully more dependable

V3 looks way more solid than the V2. Are they selling the militant separately?

Complete stealth's...didn't see that coming.

I've been trying to check out the Tanaka LT but, no luck. Is anyone else having this problem?
